On Wednesday, January 13th, we received the heart crushing news that Chase had been diagnosed with T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. His journey to recovery is expected to last for about 2 - 2.5 years. Chase can to put a smile on anyone’s face that he ever comes across, and he has the most beautiful soul. My sister Julie, Chase’s mother, will be leaving her teaching job indefinitely so that she can be his full time care giver. With the loss of her income, and with current and future medical bills, we want to do as much as possible to help them financially. We would appreciate your support of donations, and prayers. The Sultzbach family is one that pours their heart into everything and everyone, never turning down anyone hurting or in need. It is our turn to give back to them tenfold. Chase’s fight is our fight, and he has a massive army behind him. Prayers out to Chase, his father Zach, his mother Julie, and his little sister Alexa.
Tomorrow we head to Hershey for yet another spinal tap. This is the added procedure due to the abnormal cells found in Chase's spinal fluid during the last procedure. There is a chance it was caused by Covid and not the return of leukemia cells. If there are still abnormal cells, it will mean that Chase has relapsed. The percentage rate of a cure decreases significantly after a relapse. Please pray with us that everything comes back clear and normal this time. Praying that we can breathe a sigh of relief by the end of this week and continue moving forward one step at a time. 🧡💛
